Interior Ministry Spokesman Sacked After Criticising Govt

"If there’s ever a situation where I and my senior colleagues disagree on how to handle security issues, I promise to express it without fear or favor, I’ll not be leaving Somalia but staying put to serve our country” he said.

Ibrahim had claimed he had not received his salary for almost one year.

"We have not received our salaries for  11 months and if I die my children needs will be taken over by the Queen of UK” Ibrahim said at a briefing on the Alshabaab Friday attack on the Interior Ministry Headquarters.
